What's not to love? It's just one of those strange little pieces of our country that you should see it at least once in your life. That's really the true appeal of places like this; I saw an old couple graffiti their names in a...More

Always wanted to see these cars. It was however cold & windy. Still worth the short walk. Fun and other guests were enjoying it also. The weather stopped no one.

Cadillac Ranch has been spotted in movies and is a beloved site in Amarillo. Whether you take spray paint to sign your initials or just walk out there, it’s pretty cool to see several old Cadillacs vertical in the ground and in the middle of...More

Only on Route 66 should you see a Field of Cadilacs, and things of people talking pictures. Kind of neat.

Have you ever wanted to graffiti a car? Well this would be your chance! Probably the only reason that these cars haven’t rusted away, is the fact that they must have multiple layers of paint on them, where people take spray cans to graffiti the...More

Unless you just want to be sure to have the color of your own choosing, you can just use the paint that is provided. There is a huge pile of spray paint cans in various stages of emptiness/fullness right there in front of... More

Hi we are travelling through from east to west and want to stay 2 nights as Amirrillo sounds great. We know about Cadillac ranch and bits on Palo canyon, plus big texan. It has been said Golden light cafe should be good any comments. Plus with it being Cowboy country their must be a saddle/cowboy store worth the visit. Any ideas on anything else. Rodeo, catlle market ETC. We will be their eitheir Sunday/mon/tue 17th-19th June Look forward to any replies Graham

affraid your gonna be dissappointed with caddillac ranch, really not much to it, takes all of 3 mintues. Palo Duro Canyon is another story, if you like to hike take the "light house" trail, worth it and bring your camera. Golden Light Cantina has "Texas Country Music" artists thurs-sat . the cafe has great hamburgers (next door to each other) this is on 6th street lots of antique shopping also check out "the blue gator" across the street little dive with GREAT food, dont let all the...More

Road Trip - Memphis TN to LA (21 Replies)
Planning a big holiday (not for a couple of years yet) and it involves driving from Memphis to the Grand Canyon, then Vegas & LA. I was originally planning on doing the journey from Memphis (TN) to Tusayan (AZ) in two days (approx 700miles each day) but when i asked the wife if she minded doing a bit of the driving she was somewhat lacking in enthusiasm. Consequently I am considering spreading the drive over three days to make it a little easier on myself. This will also enable us to...More

Not sure if 4 days will be possible. I just want to get an idea of what is around our route. If there is more to see in Texas/New Mexico/Arizona then we will try and do a long haul on the first day (700 miles) and take things much slower on the 2nd and 3rd days (350 miles per day). If Arkansas/Oklahoma have more to offer then we will do it the other way around. We will be staying at Tusayan, close to the South Rim so should be good. Thanks for your advice.
